I was beating my fish. But fur flew in the City, I bet, as many people hauled their four-footed friends to church to have them blessed.

No comment on that. (What's the Latin for ringworm again? Read more »

I fruitlessly spent Saturday night looking for the party. Trans Am was fab as always, but after the Passionistas played, no one was dancing. Read more »

Alas, my camera crapped out over this past weekend's massive Critical Mass/LoveFest/Folsom Street Fair miasma -- but these little critters from LA artist Todd's David & Goliath line ("We make stupid stuff so you don't have to") somehow summed up my entire three-day -- and all-night -- experience.
