January 2010


Castro Photos

Fred Kirkbride, owner with his hubby of Brand X Antiques, 550 Castro, died suddenly of a heart attack. The memorial service was held Jan. 30 at Sullivan's Funeral Home. He'll be greatly missed.


The Cafe Flore is ready for Chinese New Year.


My pal Andrew Nance is starring in "Doubt" at the New Conservatory Theatre. This poster is in the Castro Muni station. On Facebook Andrew asked us not to draw on him, but I always draw on him for inspiration.

Conan O'Brien on Craigslist

Conan put an ad on Craigslist asking for bids on the "barely used Tonight Show." He got lots of funny offers.

Then he put the following ad for himself under "Casual Encounters."
- 6'4", completely ripped, VERY Caucasian. - Drapes match the carpet. - Currently homeless, must meet at your place. - Can go a whole hour (with scheduled breaks every 7-10 minutes). - Fatties welcome. - Not afraid to take two people at once, and then a musical guest. - NOTE: If you want me to perform after midnight, it'll cost you!
