The Warriors 

Did you know that the guy who directed The Warriors also directed 48 Hrs., Another 48 Hrs., Trespass (with Ices Cube and T), Crossroads (the Karate Kid!) and a zillon other films? In other words, a regular, constantly working director of middling-to-good cinema. What the fuck was he doing with The Warriors, then? Answer: He got lucky. Somewhere along the line, dear Walter Hill looked at his fairly conventional gang script and thought, gangs wear distinctive clothes, right? Like in West Side Story? Let's put them in baseball uniforms. And on roller skates. Shave these guys' heads, and put these guys in ratty clothes. There. Now they look like gangs. The rest is history.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
