The Haight Street branch of McDonald's recently did away with the $1 menu, angering homeless people in the area who relied on the cheap fast food for sustenance. How are they dealing with the situation?

• Drafting document of beefs against McDonald's. God, beef sounds good

• Acting crazier than completely necessary when digging through McDonald's trash cans

• Now asking for more change

• Blocking entrance with human wall. Actually, just sitting there as usual

• Getting stoned before making any rash decisions

• Trying to remember what the "Dollar Menu" was, anyway

• Reading Fast Food Nation ... and licking the descriptions of meat

• Marching on City Hall, any day now

• Solo protest crying on sidewalk

  • 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.

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.
