​This makeshift shrine was spotted at the foot of Bernal Hill on Bernal Heights Boulevard and quite frankly, it scares the bejeesus out of us.

The collected ephemera is like a laundry list of Things That Are Creepy When Experienced Out of Context: religious symbolism, baby accessories, and naked dolls. In addition to resembling the Nursery in Hell, the shrine-maker has collected the cast-off clothes of several people, netting two scarves and one pair of shades. (And that's not counting two pacifier-less babies.) What has become of the people who owned these items?

We can draw only one conclusion from this remarkable display: Bernal Heights is filled with Satanists.

  • 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.
