Wednesday, Sep 8 2010

• You abuse the "free doughnut" privilege

• You've used the "I meant to fire my Taser" excuse a dozen times already

• Dirty Harry is your professional role model

• You think Dan White got a raw deal

• Your hobbies include setting things that belong to your ex-wife on fire

• You commit more crimes than you stop

• You use the evidence room for recreational purposes

• Your nickname is "Shooter"

• You consistently refuse to be the Gavin's wingman when you're on mayoral security detail

• You've illegally rigged the electrical box on your growhouse

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
