Bored of the Supervisors 

Wednesday, Jan 12 2011

New members of the Board of Supervisors have been sworn in. How is the new Board of Supervisors different from the old one?

• Earnest lefty rather than profane lefty

• Already demoralized

• Not as interesting at parties

• Even more representative of the brilliant rainbow of diversity, except insofar as they're virtually all lawyers

• Absurdly telegenic

• Focused like a laser on punishing their enemies

• Determined never to have to pick a mayor again

• Better at feigning interest in ordinary people

• Somehow even less able to laugh at themselves

  • 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.
