Kidman Forever 

Wednesday, Dec 4 2013

There are Marilyns, and there are Judys, and there are Audreys, and there are Bettes, and there are Tildas, but for some, there is only she of the button nose and immobile forehead, she of varying degrees of strawberry and blonde, she of the frigid, lanky untouchability who famously wore chartreuse shantung by John Galliano in 1997 and left a nuptial union with Thomas Cruise Mapother IV in 2001. Dancers Mica Sigourney, John Foster Cartwright, and Maryam Rostami make no promises in Nicole Kidman Is Fucking Gorgeous. They do not promise to swoop in on a rhinestone-studded swing or paste on a Virginia Woolf nose. They do not promise to have clairvoyant, photosensitive children or sell you Chanel No. 5. Their Australian accents may be absent or appalling. But homage will be paid to the silver screen's ice queen.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
