Dead Again 

Wednesday, Nov 5 2008
Trina Lopez's A Second Final Rest: The History of San Francisco's Lost Cemeteries makes us think of Doug Dorst's novel Alive in Necropolis and Richard Wong and H.P. Mendoza's film Colma: The Musical, of course. What took people so long to get obsessed with the City of the Dead? Here's Wikipedia: "Essentially everyone who died in San Francisco in the twentieth Century was buried in Colma, if they were buried anywhere." Lopez' film is critical of certain aspects of Colma's city planning, and has interesting questions about the University of San Francisco campus itself, as well.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
