How's That Knee Feeling? 

Wednesday, Nov 12 2008
It sounds so upstanding: San Francisco's Run and Walk for the Hungry 5K and Mile benefits the San Francisco Food Bank. 'Tis the season to help people out even more than usual, it's true. So, nominally, the event is "for a good cause." But maybe you know some runners personally? If so, you have long suspected that they don't really care. They just want to run, it's all they think about and they'll do anything to get their fix. You can see the thoughts practically flashing across their foreheads like an LED sign: "Must ... run. Not ... hamster ... but ... must ... run." The rest of us should have sympathy for our addled friends and neighbors. They can't help themselves. But here’s how you can: Ask for their pledge form and donate some money.

  • 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.
