too-big-to-fail

Celebrate the economic collapse in (Star Wars) style

Paying homage to our national economic crisis, this stylish Death Star “TOO BIG to FAIL” t-shirt is pretty right on, except for the bailout sized price…a bank account busting $28.25. But at least it provides a little humor in an other wise dark(side) time in our history.

HD Walk-through: California Academy of Sciences GGP

Anyone who knows me, knows I love my SF neighborhood – Inner Sunset – more than the average Fog City citizen. A large part of the love comes from my close proximity (2 blocks) to one of the world’s best public, urban green spaces – Golden Gate Park. The recent opening (well, I guess not …
