The case for Concord

By Ailene Sankur

What would make me want to spend a year of my life living in Concord?

Love.

Cheap rent. ($350/month to live with said person I loved, and another roommate.)

Bomb-ass Mexican food.

I am about to say a very controversial thing: I have yet to eat a truly good burrito in the city. I have been up and down Mission, up and down Valencia, and to El Beach Burrito by my house in the Sunset, and found nothing but decent -- bordering on good -- burritos. I am not impressed. Read more »

The inner life of Annie Leibovitz

By Ailene Sankur

The best brunch in the city isn’t at J’s Pots of Soul or Boogaloos, my friends. It’s at the Legion of Honor, that elegant neoclassical building perched high atop foggy Land’s End (so Hitchcockian), during the press preview for the Legion’s Annie Leibovitz exhibit. (There is a Sunday brunch for the masses, but I doubt you get your own nametag – or a chat with Ms. Leibovitz -- at that one.) A pyramid of martini glasses held fresh fruit salad garnished with sprigs of mint. Read more »

Thank you, David Simon. Newspaper journalism couldn't have asked for a clearer voice. But it would have been nice to see Frank Pembleton one last time.

Hey napkin-doodler! Win this ...

Heavy metal: the Iron Man trailer

By Candice Chan

Wicked flipping awesome! The new Iron Man trailer came out last week and is so good I could watch it backwards while doing a headstand and I'd still want more. Let's hope the movie can live up to the hype that the trailer has sparked. Regardless, though, Tony Stark is the most badass alcoholic ever. Seriously, there is nothing quite as sexy as a dude who can hold his liquor, build impenetrable armor, and blow up a tank all by himself ... AT THE SAME TIME. Drool. Read more »

Tom Lenk, who played one of my favorite characters in the later seasons of Buffy (Andrew, the geek villain), takes on Chris Crocker and Diablo Cody in what is perhaps my favorite YouTube parody to date. Read more »

There will be more blood: El Topo returns to the screen of the crime

By Erik Morse

After its belated 2007 release in a highly anticipated DVD box set, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 1970 midnight masterpiece El Topo – which translates to "The Mole" – will revisit the big screen on March 6 and 8 as a part of SFMOMA’s “Non-Western Westerns” film series.

El Topo has been touted as nothing less than the Philosopher’s Stone of film by certain cineastes, as well as by ars gratia artis anarchists and alchemy students. Read more »

Lick your pickle, kids

Hey, kids! Can you feel the heat? Ready to cool down with a nice tart treat? Then wrap your lips around a big frozen pickle.

Yep, that's right -- you'll be cool as a cucumber with this doozy: The Pickle Sickle, which despite it's name is NOT a preserved fruit bearing grim death. It's a Popsicle made of picle juice, which the makers tout as a healthy alternative to sugar-laden frozen treats. Read more »

Kerchiefs. Gezundheit! We've been reticent to write about one of our favorite local designers, Mica Phelan aka Horseface, because he's just so damn popular -- no one is anyone in this town without a House of Horseface bandanna hanging somewhere off their body. And we'd never cave in to that kind of popularity. Kidding! Read more »
