SF Go Club

SF Go Club

First rule of SF Go Club? Talk about SF Go Club!

I saw a posting on the internet about a "giant game of go" and I just had to see it for myself. These guys were really nice. Free lessons on Tuesdays at 7:30 at the corner of 8th and Anza.

Also, thanks to Michelle at Zeum for letting me walk around for free.

Restaurant Review: Feel Real Cafe


So, this is an idea I stole from Chuck Olsen of Minnesota Stories. Probably only the first of many ideas I will steal from Chuck. Anyway, the idea is video restaurant reviews. Go to a restaurant with a camera, order stuff, and talk about it.

I sort of cheated this time, since I've been to the Feel Real several times before, and rather like it. Does that make this a commercial? No money was exchanged, so let's just call it an endorsement.

The Feel Real is on the corner of 45th and Judah in San Francisco, CA. Go there.

The music was Trip Hop Reconstruction (Vincent_Vega rmx) by Vincent_Vega11 from ccmixter.org.

Mark Grim talks about art and creativity

Wouldn't you just know it? My first video is just a few k over the max filesize limit that ourmedia.org allows. I had to upload this at YouTube. Oh well, I'll just have to be more careful next time.

Mark Grim is a friend of mine from the neighborhood, and we've had several good philosophical back-and-forths on the nature of creativity and finding a vision. You can find out more about his art at markgrimsart.com.

The music was Samba Do Aeroporto (pra gringo rmx) by Gerador Zero, and you can get it free from ccmixter.org.
