On the Bus, With an Apple on His Head ... Chris Daly?

Our devoted readers may remember the day we ran into Gerard Depardieu on the Muni. Well, not really. But, seriously, check it out: That's more than a passing resemblance.

In much the same way, we thought we saw Supervisor Chris Daly guest-starring in an ad for the city's health care program (and so did the people sitting near us). I'd love to share a bus ride with Daly; if anyone's going to stand up to the ingrate spitting sunflower seeds on the seats and floor, it would be him.

Here's the ad:

  • 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.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. 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.
